About Me

I'm Dr. Matthew McConnell, a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston (M.M., D.M.A., Doctor of Musical Arts.) I specialize in giving piano, organ, and composition lessons to children and adults of all ages and skill levels.

My Musical Education Background

My Teaching Philosophy:
I will share my passion for music, and will coach and instruct so that you or your children enjoy obtaining the skills necessary to create beautiful music in the most rewarding and enriching ways. I will guide you to the feeling of supreme accomplishment that comes with learning how to play a beautiful instrument. Imagine the joy you'll experience when you use your talents to amaze and delight your friends and family! Playing music is a gift you give to yourself, and also a gift to be shared with those you love. My role as an instructor is to equip you with the technical and mental faculties necessary to unleash your awesome musical potential!

My Teaching Background:
I've been teaching privately for the past 12 years. In addition, I was a Teaching Fellow at the New England Conservatory where I taught Fundamentals of Music, Graduate Theory, Ear Training, and Keyboard from 2006 to 2008.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I provide piano, organ, composition, and music theory lessons. Classical and popular styles are offered. (I do not teach jazz piano.)

Lesson Rates

Prices are $25 for forty-five minutes, and $30 for an hour. First lesson/introduction is free. Family discounts are available for back-to-back lessons.

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

I teach students of all ages and skill levels. For small children, lesson time is divided between playing musical, ear-training games and time at the keyboard.
